30-Day Organize-athon

Now, as regular readers and real-life friends will know, DragonMumma is a Clutterer at best, borderline hoarder who is aware of this and strives to make sure it doesn't get out of control.

While on Facebook today, I came across this link on a friends post

30 Day Organize-athon @

So I dutifully read the blurb and downloaded it (if you LIKE them on Facebook, you get the eBook for free).

Taken straight from the website... (link above)

What Is The 30-Day Organize-athon?

Make a fresh start and get better organized in just 30 days with the easy and motivating 30-Day Organize-athon.

Over 30 days I’ll give you a daily 5-minute organizing or decluttering project. Each assignment will be a simple, step-by-step task to organize a small aspect of your home, time or life.

That’s just 30 days of 5-minute tasks – totally achievable!

At the end of the 30 days, your home and life will be transformed – and it will only have taken you 5 minutes a day! Very cool.
Before I start, I just wanted to say something for the record. I'm not a fan of these 'organisational' things. I have watched them on TV and Foxtel, read the books, looked at blogs - all because its a bit like Real Estate Porn, interesting to look at other people lives, maybe get some tips for yourselves, but only for people who

a) don't really need the help, just a kick up their butts,

b) haven't had someone show them how to do it before


c) IMO most successful for those many people who are already naturally inclined to be tidy anyway and are NOT Clutterers/Hoarders. 

But, I am willing to give it a go. I have already started decluttering previous to this challenge - this house has seen a loss of about 45 garbage bags of clothes, 22 bags of toys and decluttering of other areas. But as a Clutterer/Hoarder, I find it difficult to keep on top of - add two kids, a just-as-slack husband (Hi Honey, LOL), friends and their kids, two cats, two rabbits, one snake, four lizards into the mix and add a pound of bad back and you can see the results for yourself! lol

SO I will use this blog for recording my progress. I *think* I signed up for the daily emails successfully (we'll find out soon enough) but regardless, I will be doing the steps in the ebook I downloaded and will post them here.
Wish Me Luck!!
